“Most Cowardly” should instead be called what it really is- “WORST”!
The Michigan schedule has only 2 opponents outside the “Power Five” and is far better than ours; in addition to losing to ASU the last time they played them, the Wolverines also lost (at home) to the Utes in their last encounter. I was there for both.
Most all “Power Five” schools will host smaller schools at one time or another, but few seem to make every season a cupcake feast like we do.
Thanks again, Wolfpack administrators!
Incidentially, those ASU folks who were responsible for this year’s trip to Ann Arbor (and ASU’s exit from the SOCON) look like the kind of folks NCSU would love to have in their ivory tower.06/18/2014 at 7:11 PM #52736mak4dpakParticipant
Not an impressive out of conference schedule, but if we can hold our own in the conference, it should be less of an issue. But we certainly do need to beef up the out of conference schedule, to get butts in the seats.06/19/2014 at 6:46 AM #52740BJD95Keymaster
National attention (in a negative way) may really be the only impetus for change, scheduling-wise. Kudos to Forde.06/19/2014 at 8:08 AM #52742howlieParticipant
Yet playing us, Maryland, Connecticut, & Western Carolina at home is “making major strides” at USF? When did those four teams become “major [programs]” in elevating someone’s schedule?06/22/2014 at 8:43 PM #52821john of spartaParticipant
1. four chances for a devastating loss.
2. a zero inspirational victory opportunity.
